Friday we tried to go to a local Judgement house . But they were not doing it that day . So we went out to eat @ Ruby Tuesdays and went to see Kung-FU Panda @ the dollar theater (which is actually the $1.99 theater) LOL . We treated the Princess and her intended to a pretty fun evening .
But then Friday a very tragic accident took the precious life of one of said intendeds friends . He has worked hard at dealing with his own loss and trying to be there for others who are hurting . He held together all Friday night and then Saturday when he got to our house he fell into the princesses arm and sobbed like a baby . It was SO heart wreching !! It is a new place for her to be learning to stand with the gallant young man the Lord has so graciously given to her ! It is awesome watching God develop this relationship . And , with His grace , He is letting them learn many important things before they are married and out on thier own .
It looks like , with out Gods intervention, the princly proteg'e may have to have some surgery . Yet another thing for them to learn of each-other thru . What satan means for harm God is always redeeming for our good . Wow ! It truly amazes me !!
Ok , I guess I have rambled enough today ...there is just SO much on my mind !
My next post will be a late MPM . Sigh ....life is many things , but seldom boring !

I took the prince bowling with a couple of his friends today . It was pretty good . And since Donna is always full great info , I also got some great ideas . We might be able to get involved in some 4H stuff that would actually be enjoyable ...like archery ! The idea bears more investigation on my part .
I did some more canning . I did alot of pear combos . since I had gotten quite a few pears for free . I did a lovely spiced pear jelly . It used red-hots , which were really hard to find by the way . You can find that recipe here
http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Cider-Jelly I used fresh pear juice , not cider . The taste is very good and it is such a pretty red that I think it will make lovely Christmas gifts .
I haven't been posting my menu , and DH is out-of-town so I am not good at doing the whole routine when he's gone . But DD intended has been coming for dinner once a week so that keeps me anchored on task a little better . It is definately something I continue to work on ! I will ost the menu for next week ! And to be realistic .. may not be back on here until then ! So go find me on facebook , I am there more often ! LOL
